 While our resident cat is exploring new litter boxes abroad, we’re rotating Flush Friday duty. Hehe. Doody. Check it out, we’re gonna RAGE this weekend!

It’s Labor Day weekend, flushers! You know what that means? We have to try extra hard to beat your lifeloving spirit into the cold, dead ground. So this week’s installment is pure, unfiltered, raging anger, and Occams Razor Ramon and I are dishing it out. So count your weekend ruined and headbang along in fuming despair.

First up we have the song “Ingest” by Brain Famine. Right off the bat, how many vocal layers are on that verse?! How angry is he? Is that just 10 dudes in the studio having a hate contest? Well, it sounds like everyone wins (or loses), because this song is an absolute crusher. Dirty, angry riffs persist through the rest of the song, along with a lead that doesn’t really act like a solo as much as a bunch of tiny middle fingers buzzing around your face. You know that feeling. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly despise where you are and need to punch the Earth in the face. Forget relaxing on the jet skis with some brewskies with your broskies. That’s rage, and you’ve been flushed this Friday.


Occam’s Razor Ramon

If you’re anything like me, seeing Genericore (TRADEMARKED, BACK OFF) bands with their 42 string guitars prancing about playing their 2 note songs created to please the masses of mindless idiots in Affliction shirts and Five Finger Death Punch flat bill caps probably pisses you off. Well good news my friend! That means you not only have something in common with yours truly, but you also share a common bond with Murder Construct which means you have something in common with Travis Ryan which makes you the coolest kid on the block. I tell you all of this because my Flush Friday selection this week is “Compelled by Mediocrity” by Murder Construct. There is a palpable rage running through every moment of the song. Riffs alternate between groovy chugs and furious chord changes before settling into a crusher perfect for windmilling along at around the 1:24 mark. Travis Ryan brings all of the vitriol you expect in his lyrics, some of my favorites being:

“We must demolish/This fucking turd you polished/Born to suck/Born to regurgitate other idiots’ mistakes/Bred to be the same/Bred for lame”

 So get ready to burn all of the mouthbreathers around you alive and jam some Murder Construct while you await your trial.

  • Edward Meehan

    I checked out that Murder Construct cause of the RHRC briefly. It was like 6:00 am but I liked what I heard!

  • Perkele

    These are pretty good. Not as good as the new Solstafir, but good.

    • heard the song Otta. pretty rocket! will listen to more…

      • Metaphysical Anus

        That album is currently battling for the 1st place on my aoty list.

  • Fun fact: Travis Ryan is awesome AND his name is Travis. So that’s possible.

    • Perkele

      How is his name being Travis a fun fact?

    • CyberneticOrganism

      I’ve only known one Travis my entire life #TravisFacts

      • Xan

        Same here. He was a scum bag. #TravisFacts

        • JWG

          I won’t let my experience of Travises colour my expectation of all persons named Travis.

          Now, ‘Tad’ or ‘Owen’. Those are usually red flags #TadFacts #OwenFacts

          • Xan

            It’s usually “Kyle” for me. All of the kids I had bully me in high school were named Kyle though I have met a few good Kyles. #KyleFacts

          • crazytaco_12

            Dude, Tad Leger from Blood Farmers/Lucertola/ex-Toxik is a fucking awesome dude named Tad. Insanely cool, nice guy

    • I’ve noticed something. People with two first names (as in a first name for a last name) are usually exceptionally good at their craft. This applies to sports as well.

      • I require examples accompanying such a bold statement.

        • Ok well Travis Ryan for one, Lets see, lebron james, kobe byrant, michael jordan, thomas jones, tom brady, anthony davis. Lots of sports names there. I’m not as good at remembering band member names but you get the idea.

          • who? x6

          • what?

          • If you don’t know who michael jordan is you can leave the hall and lock yourself in the interrogation room for eternity.

          • Howard Dean

            Nicholas Cage is the worst actor ever.

          • That’s what makes him great!

          • Scrimm

            Both of the above statements are true.

          • Tyree

            Exactly!

          • guess you haven’t seen Wicker Man or Bad Lieutenant

          • Howard Dean

            I saw the remake of Wicker Man with Nicholas Cage. Not nearly as good as the original. He just tries too hard. His acting is not good. I cringe when I think about Con Air, Face/Off, The Rock, or Gone in 60 Seconds. Blurgh.

          • Howard Dean

            This is not Harvey Keitel. This is not Bad Lieutenant.

          • this one is probably 1000x better than the harvey keitel one

          • Backed.

          • Howard Dean

            It must be my taste, but I just can’t get into Nick Cage. He essentially ruins movies for me. His acting is just so forced. Even in that scene above, I can’t take any of his acting seriously. When he tries to act, it sticks out like a boner in sweat pants and just ruins the scene for me. I can’t focus on anything else but his acting, and how poor it is. The only movie of his that I like is Raising Arizona, but that was a crazy oddball movie anyway, so his weird shtick sort of worked.

          • Dat analogy tho.

          • howard… i’m just messing around. nick cage is harrible

          • Howard Dean

            Hah! My online sarcasm detector needs a little tuning.

            Werner Herzog > Abel Ferrara

          • Tyree

            This scene is great.

          • Hey now, I love gone in 60 seconds.

          • KJM

            BEES!!!!

          • KJM

            His best movie is ‘Wild At Heart’, great film.

          • Tyree

          • Tyree

            The most recent Bad Lieutenant was really fun.

          • KJM

            You spelled “Eric Roberts” wrong.

          • Howard Dean

            Hahahahaha.

          • NefariousDude

            Nic Cage is an immortal.

            Byahh!!

          • SMOHLG

            False. Con-Air. 10/10 would oscar nominate.

          • Perkele

            kthxbye

          • You seriously don’t know who he is?

          • Perkele

            Nope.

          • Perkele

            Oh, he’s a basketball player. I don’t follow spurts.

          • Yep the greatest basketball player of all time, that’s all. No biggie……https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAr6oAKieHk

          • Perkele

            I’m not interested by him. As I already said, I don’t follow spurts.

          • Howard Dean

            Dude, number 47, where he broke Vlade Divac’s ankles! So awesome.

          • I wish I was a bit older just so I could have seen him in his prime and understood what I was seeing.

          • Howard Dean

            Also #41, an old clip, where he crosses up Larry Bird? Too good. Byah!

          • Byah indeed!

          • KJM

            I hate Sports and I know who Jordan is, probably because of my age.

          • I mean… He’s considered one of the greatest athletes of all time.

          • Perkele

            I’m also from a different country.

          • When are you gonna tell us where you are really from? I mean c’mon everyone knows finland is an urban legend.

          • Perkele

            And then there’s this fucking cunt of a man.

          • <3

          • Perkele

            I don’t love you any more.

          • Scrimm

            How the hell is it even possible to not know who he is?

          • I dunno man. I just don’t know.

          • KJM

            It’s like not knowing who Babe Ruth is. Maybe it’s just an American thing.

          • it’s a candy bar

          • “kobe byrant”

            byrant

            lol

          • Lol it’s a silly first name but it’s still a first name.

          • I was laughing at the misspelling. pls don’t edit it.

          • lol i didn’t even notice

          There was a kid that I went to high school with who’s name was ANDY RALPH, and he was exceptionally good at trying to slyly fondle my hardware. NOT COOL.

    • i think there’s a Travis among us. dem0nocracy?

    • Gobshite

      Travis is also a super fucking intense dude (on stage anyway) and yet he’s super fucking approachable. Blew Cryptopsy out of the water that night he did, M’lord!

      • mos def, very nice guy. my buddy and i just walked up and said hi, asked him about the video for Forced Gender Reassignment. talked to us for five minutes!

        • Gobshite

          We chatted for about 15 mins? He was sweating a small puddle on the floor and was perfectly fine with talking to us. Flo Mounier was probably the sweatiest bloke I’ve ever met though, couldn’t get a proper grip on his hand to shake it. He has a tiny fan affixed to his kit and it didn’t do shit.

          • Howard Dean

            I’ve always heard Flo can be kind of a dick and isn’t all that friendly/is kind of self-indulged. Did you get that vibe from him at all?

          • Gobshite

            Couldn’t really glean much from him as it was only a 3 minute encounter, seemed cordial enough. I’d say something about Montreal/French Canadians folk being inherently unfriendly, but I’ve never been there so it’s quite a sweeping statement to make.

      • Howard Dean

        He also shares the award for “Most likely to get in a fistfight with Chris Barnes” with the late Seth Putnam.

        • Gobshite

          Is it possible to strangle a man with his own dreads? Anyway, I made a disparaging heckle about Barnes and Travis smirked.

        • KJM

          Seth was an okay enough guy when he wasn’t “in character”.

        • Scrimm

          Fuck Barnes. Took a joint from me years ago while he was onstage and didnt give it back

        • Xan

          Travis also shares the award with Christ Reifert for vocals that sound like he would puke after doing them. Hot damn those vocals are intense.

    • Stockhausen

      I love this comment.

  • LOVE murder construct!!! need more

  • Tyree

    Did anybody else think that Brain Famine was the band Birdflesh when they pressed play. They sound just like them. Not a bad thing.

    Also, hail Danny Walker.

    • Occams_Razor_Ramon

      Danny Walker is the fucking man

  • First time checking out Brain Famine. They mean. I dig it.

    • Same here. This kills.

    • Christian Molenaar

      You blind fools! Stockhausen only knows them from me constantly talking about random bands in the RHRC! Pay attention to me!

      • Stockhausen is a poser who only listens to bands we recommend.
        #StockFacts

      • Howard Dean

        I find it incredibly difficult to keep up with the RHRC posts, ToH comments, and the many other layers of the toilet hierarchical organization. I don’t have enough time. I pretty much just stick to the ToH itself and the comments.

        • Yeah man. It’s exhausting. Today is my last day at my current job so I plan on fixing up the forums here over the next week. I’d prefer folks played around in there instead of some outside group that may or may not exist.

          • Howard Dean

            I agree. I’d rather have one comprehensive package rather than stuff strewn all over the place. I feel like I’m getting constant updates on my phone, and I don’t even know what’s going on half the time. It’s just an overload of stuff, and I don’t have the time to lend attention to all of it. I’m a fan of the ToH itself, and will be happy to use the forums.

        • Christian Molenaar

          The forums will be a huge boon to the community. I was talking to Joe about this but I find it pretty disheartening that someone (me) will write a post about one subject and the comments will be dominated by massive threads of pointless discussions totally unrelated to the post. Sort of like this comment I’m writing right now! I’m hoping people will transition to the forums without much fuss and the Disqus comments can remain (mostly) relevant.

          • This x10000.
            It’ll be nice to have a place to discuss things irrelevant to the article, in place of the occasional 80+ comment threads of nonsense.

          • guilty! y’all are just too much fun.

        • Cock of Steele

          We’re gonna need a key or wiki page for the various bureaus of the Adeptus Lavatorium.

      • Stockhausen

        There is 50/50 chance I heard about them from Tyree. u prolly nvr herd of tehm , lol do u evn kno metal???,??

        *doesn’t feel better, cries*

        • Christian Molenaar

          Nah, I know for sure it was me because after that you proposed a hypothetical tour of mean metal bands that I wish I could remember.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I’ve been working on some lyrics for an album I’m working on. It’s called Scott Hall’s Malt Liquor Stash and the lyrics I have are extremely dark and filled with bottled up rage and desperate pleas to go back to a better time. Then there is the song I have titled Alana which is probably the darkest song on the album and it’s what I call a conversation between my past self and my current self and a scathing criticism of everyone I knew in high school. I don’t know when it will be finished but when it is I will post a link to my Bandcamp page where it will be located. I have finished the lyrics for Alana and I am in the process of recording it.

      I will be trying that. But for now Trve Brewing has a new IPA coming out this week. Those guy`s don`t know how to make a bad beer!

  • I NEED MOAR MURDER CONSTRUCT.
    Also, the artwork for that is so fucking cool.

  • My dream vocal collaboration is Travis Ryan and the vocalist of Unhuman. That would be beyond insane.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    That Murder Construct song is very good. I enjoyed it more than I would care to admit.

    • what’s wrong admiring that, mr. duggan?

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I don’t know. It was a great song and this kind of music that makes you release emotion really helps me get out the emotions I have bottled up in my time on this earth. I’ve bottled up a lot of emotion since last June and this sort of music designed to anger you or depress you is a great way to release that anger and depression.

        • yes, it is true. i started listening to metal because i was an angry kid. now i’m super happy! but still love the metals.

          • Perkele

            Damn you for your happiness!

          • i am a cunting lifelover!

          • Perkele

            Well, at least you’re not a (rest of this comment has been censored by the police due to it being politically incorrect).

          • It’s politically correct to shoot a zombie in the face.

          • Perkele

            There are no zombies, Jack.

          • Perkele

            This is decent, except for the vocals. They’re fucking horrible.

          • Don’t rip on destrage man. I will lock you in a soundproof room with lady gaga.

          • Perkele

            I don’t care about that. At least then I could be near a lady.

          • KJM

            I can’t stand her music but, to be fair, that’s a horrible pic of her.

          • can you do that to me instead? your local “shitty pop” fan

          • Cock of Steele

            Those vocals are the same reason I can’t get in to Code Orange, they sound like some angsty hipster. NOT TRVE

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I love the metals as well even if I haven’t been alive long enough to see whether I will become super happy or stay super angry and depressed. I’ve begun to like a few bands I used to hate such as Saga and Queensryche from Promised Land onwards. I still hate Frequency Unknown but my dislike of albums like Dedicated to Chaos and Q2K has really diminished because of FU. Anything I listen to by them has improved by great amounts once I listened to FU. On the other hand, I listened to Mindcrime today for the first time in years and I loved it compared to when I considered it overblown and pretentious. It’s not at the level of The Wall or Quadrophenia but it does equal Scenes from a Memory in my opinion. Its themes are still relevant today and maybe even more so than when the album came out. I may not like Geoff as a person but musically I think he can put something out that would be better than FU if he puts in a bit more effort. I heard he’s putting out a concept album trilogy and if he puts the same amount of effort into that as he did into either Mindcrime album he will have created a masterpiece.

          • not a huge Queensryche fan. 10 years ago i heard “Silent Lucidity” and loved it, purchased “Empire”, hated it and sold it back to the used record store.
            i can dig the newest self-titled album. hard dig. guess i have to try operation mindcrime again!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I enjoyed the self titled as well. I used to hate a lot of their output but it’s grown on me. It’s good stuff to listen to while thinking deeply. I consider Empire one of their classic albums that is up there with Rage for Order, The Warning and Mindcrime. Compared to Frequency Unknown every album they have ever done is a classic. I hate FU about as much as any Emmure record or Illud Divinum Insanus because it’s that bad.
